Project Versus J, The “Ultimate Jump Game,” Stars Luffy, Goku And Toriko


Namco Bandai announced not one, but two projects via Shounen Jump magazine this week. The first is One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 (see here); the other is Project Versus J, which is described as the “ultimate Jump game”.


The magazine’s report shows One Piece’s Monkey D. Luffy, Dragon Ball Z’s Goku and Toriko’s Toriko as characters that will make an appearance in Project Versus J.


A platform and release date have yet to be announced, but Project Versus J isn’t the first Jump magazine crossover game. A few years ago, Nintendo published Jump Super Stars and Jump Ultimate Stars for the Nintendo DS, both of which were crossover fighting games featuring characters from manga that serializes in the Shounen Jump magazine.
